. >> the hospital says the health and safety of the patients is the top priority. elizabeth cohen is our senior medical correspondent. good to see you. >> good to see you. >> this nurse she treats some of the sickest patients and if they get the flu there could be some serious health consequences. >> right, if you or i get the flu it's unpleasant, we're out of work for a couple of days or maybe a week, we don't feel well but we're probably not going to die but when someone is that sick in the hospital or in a hospice, if they get the flu, they could die and in fact 36,000 people a year die from the flu, so it's a serious thing for these patients. >> so this hospital has this mandatory policy. is this becoming more common? >> it is becoming more common because the only protection really for these very sick patients, of course they get the flu shot themselves, but it's so surround them with people who have also been vaccinated, so before around 2005 hospitals didn't really care so much, they didn't really push this, but then they started to push it and look at these numbers. it really tells you s
. sanjay gupta is in atlanta. what are you expecting to hear? >> elizabeth cohen has been working through the night on getting these numbers. one number, which is important and what we expected. widespread outbreak of the flu. 47 states, up from 41 states with an outbreak of the flu. some good news. the number of states with high levels of activity has gone down from 29 now to 24. two additional deaths in young people, from 18 to 20. but there may be some relief as you say in sight. we are at epidemic threshold. that basically means we are seeing more cases than we expected to see at this time year. big question? will those cases stay elevated or will they start to come down across the country? >> we keep hearing, get a flu shot, get a flu shot. some got our flu shots early. yes, i'm gloating. if you haven't gotten your flu shot yet, is there enough vaccine? >> i think so. i crunched some numbers on this overnight. may be some spot shortages, but general numbers, take aook at how many of these vaccines were specifically manufactured, 135 million, bottom number, 112 million vaccinated. not
to the clinton administration when president clinton invited william cohen, a republican to be defense secretary. then the obama administration, president obama asked robert gates, a republican to be defense secretary. then there was leon panetta. and now another republican, chuck hagel. what's wrong with democrats being defense secretary? >> right. actually, just as an historical footnote, roberts used to be a republican. you know, i think that there's a sort of feeling that each one of these can be justified. i think president clinton and cohen had a good relationship, as does president obama and senator hagel. in gates' instance, that made a lot of sense. so much was going on that you didn't want to have an immediate change in the defense. but that is true, that it looks like democrats always want to appoint republican secretaries of defense. also if you look at the history of the independent councils, they have almost all been republicans. and as a democrat i sometimes get frustrated, too. we can't find an independent council in our own party. i can understand the frustration but the preside

, like when william cohen. can you compare when william cohen was nominated as a republican by a democratic president as opposed to senator hagel? >> we've heard republicans say that chuck hagel ceased being a republican several years ago. they were concerned when he voted against -- remember, he voted against the iraq surge. he was against it. he differed from the bush administration on a number of things and i think a lot of republicans feel that he sort of left the party a while back. >> brian: jennifer griffin at the white house for a very good reason. news secretary of defense is going to be nominated today. thanks. >> gretchen: another controversial issue was general mccrystal. remember over in afghanistan he was leading the charge there and he gave an interview to the rolling stone magazine. in that, there were many revelations about how he felt about president obama and his administration. subsequently, mccrystal did resign. >> brian: i will say this, he was never quoted, criticizing the administration. others were saying that's how he felt. but he never blamed anybo
steps. this really is a very touching moment. elizabeth cohen joins us to talk about his journey. i mean, how did he do this? >> it was a year-long journey. he had a stroke that, as you can see, made it extremely difficult to walk. he had to relearn all of that. you know what part of the key was? he went through a rehab program very intensive. it wasn't just all the regular stuff that they do. it was a lot of walking. it was a lot of going up stairs. it was very intense. it went on longer than many other rehab programs do. we were talking to a prominent stroke doctor today, suzanne, and he wishes every stroke patient had this kind of rehab and that it didn't just end. it goes on for years and years even after someone appears to be getting better. >> members of congress have a great insurance package and great medical coverage. is that the thing that normal stroke patients would have access to when you look at what he was able to do? >> this doctor said a lot of health insurance programs give you a set time, a matter of a couple of months for rehab and say you're done. when you have great
? the gentleman from dn ised for one minute. mr. cohen: thank you, mr. speaker. we just fin innered the read -- finished the reading of the constitution. that's fine. it's a majestic document. it's never bad to read. it but it's one thing to read it and another thing to really understand it. to understand it you have to understand the court decisions and how the courts have interpreted the constitution. the courts have recognized the constitution as a living, evolving document and that it's not perfect. congress had to pass an amendment to formally abolish slavery and it took the supreme court and the board of education vs. brown case to apolish jim crow, the tell-child of slavery. and a great stain on this country's history. thanks to roe v. wade, women have a fundamental right to make decisions about their own bodies, a right that continues to be threatened by this congress. and while the constitution grants great freedoms, the courts recognize that they come with reasonable limitations. the first amendment gives us freedom of speech but doesn't allow us to yell fire in a theater. and the
